    Not sure where else to ask this question so I'll ask it here.

    Do I pay GST on the amount that the rifle is in US dollars or the price that it winds up being after the currency exchange to Canadian?

    I'm looking to import a Desert Tech rifle and I am trying to figure out final costs.

    -->edit post -->go advanced -->prefix -->pls remove
    Putting "pls remove" or "spf" in your ad, but not in the title or prefix, wastes everyone else's time!

    to paraphrase an American founding father " every country should have a revolution every 200 years".

    Has this changed? I am pretty sure if your province that you live in charges HST they have to legally charge HST if you purchase something.

    CAN is 76 cents to USD, so add approximately 24% to the USD pricing on the site.
    So 24% exchange + importation fee + shipping + 5% tax.

    - Better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it.

    I wouldnt want to start dealing with provincial governments collecting taxes. THey are like pitbulls when remittance is due. If your late they beat you severly. If your late again the not only beat you, but they beat your bank account. Dont ask if you do it a third time. Who would want to be a tax collector for governments. In the end those greedy bastards make more profit than the retailer does, and they dont do a God Damn thing to deserve it. They aint there when items get lost in the mail. THey aint there when your new stuff aint right or broken. THey aint there till midnight trying to figure out how to stay in business.

    Also feel free to remit the taxes yourself if your feeling guilty.

    Does it make a difference?

    5% GST on $100 USD item would be USD $5 (CAD $6.5)

    or if converted into CAD $100 USD would be $130 CAD hence GST would be $6.5 CAD
